    I mentioned in another post that I saw NIN (Nine Inch Nails) in a dive bar in North Newark, NJ before they were famous.

    How about you?




    I also ran on stage at a GoGo's concert and got A hug from Belinda Carlisle at Radio City Music Hall. But they had already made it big.

    Saw the Alman Brothers in 1970. In 1971, I was asked to go pick up Dwayne Alman at a hotel. When I got there, there were two women in the hotel room with him. I drove him back to the show in a borrowed 1965 VW.
    ZZ Top on an airplane in 1973. We were the only people on it and talked the whole trip.
    In 1976, I worked in a restaurant with Phred from B52s. He made salads, I was a waiter. The band was just in initial rehearsals, as I recall.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd at a prep/reform school for affluent juvenile delinquents and past and future senators in Chattanooga Tennessee when I was a seventh grader. It was a dance but I just sat there entranced. Three years later they released 'Pronounced' and I heard 'I Ain't The One' on FM radio. I was like... I know this song!

    The rest is history.

    I dont know if they would classify as a band but I did see the singing group Take6 before they really hit it big on the scene.
